I'm thinking about joining a support group in my community for women who are survivors of rape and sexual abuse. What should I expect? My rape happened 2 months ago today. (So far, anniversaries are difficult for me.) I was also abused as a child. Since the rape happened, I've been in and out of mental wards, but I am now feeling much stronger and as though I'm ready to begin the next step in the healing process. I have a new boyfriend (that I met in the hospital) who has also been through similar things and is very supportive of me, but I think it would be good for me to expand my support system. What are your thoughts on this? I would also appreciate any advice or positive experiences you could share with me. Thanks for your responses!
